Clever Solutions to Help Prevent Limescale & Corrosion

Scale Reduction

Benefits for the whole house

Easy instal­la­tion - No main­te­nance

BWT domestic phys­ical water condi­tioners are compact in size and require zero or minimal main­te­nance, making them ideal for where space is limited or future access maybe restricted.

Cost effec­tive

With models to suit a variety of appli­ca­tions from whole house to single appli­ance protec­tion. Phys­ical water condi­tioners can, when installed correctly, be a cost effec­tive means of reducing the damaging effects of limescale around the home. Competively priced, many of the condi­tioners in the BWT range also have no ongoing running costs, requiring no main­te­nance, chem­i­cals or elec­tricity.

Protect Appli­ances

With less hard limescale deposits many appli­ances like your washing machine, dish­washer, coffee maker and even your central heating boiler not only benefit from working more effi­ciently but can actu­ally last longer. Less limescale deposits also means less cleaning, and the like­ly­hood of your appli­ance suffering from scale related break­downs.

Whole House Protec­tion

Many of our models are excel­lent at protecting single appli­ances around your home like your shower or an instan­te­nous hot water heater. You can also choose to protect your whole home by fitting an appro­priate BWT phys­ical water condi­tioners on the cold water feed close to your stop­cock this will help protect the whole house from the build-up of limescale. From the heat exchanger in your boiler to the taps in your bedroom, from the washing machine in your utility room to your dish­washer and kettle in the kitchen.

Control the build up of scale

Easy Installation & maintenance-friendly

Phys­ical water condi­tioners can offer a low cost, envi­ron­men­tally friendly alter­na­tive for control­ling the build up of scale where heat exchange takes place. These devices don’t radi­cally alter the water chem­istry, are easy to install and inex­pen­sive to run. In general they inhibit the forma­tion of scale by changing its phys­ical prop­er­ties, and are ideal for protecting specific appli­ances at the point where the water flows into them. Some will also offer entire house protec­tion.

  • Perma­nent magnets
    These encourage the forma­tion of larger, needle shaped crys­tals as opposed to the normal, small cubic pattern. This reduces the ‘stick­i­ness’ of the scale, and enables it to be washed away by the flow of water. They are ideal for the protec­tion of indi­vidual appli­ances. BWT UK distrib­utes a number of these prod­ucts under the Liff brand.
  • Elec­tro­mag­nets
    These encourage some of the dissolved calcium in the water to precip­i­tate as minute seed crys­tals in the water itself. When the water is heated these ‘seed crys­tals’ attract further scale to them rather than the metal surfaces around them. The larger crys­tals which result, are washed away in the water flow.

    These can be used to protect the entire house­hold as well as indi­vidual appli­ances.
  • Elec­tronic devices
    These use very low power elec­trical energy flowing through wires wrapped around the pipes. Again, these encourage the forma­tion of seed crys­tals which attract further precip­i­ta­tion to them­selves rather than the metal surfaces around them. The larger crys­tals which result, are washed away in the water flow.

    These devices are ideal for protecting indi­vidual appli­ances, but can be used to protect the entire house if they are powerful enough.
  • Elec­tro­static devices
    These use the flow of water through the device to create an elec­tric field which encour­ages the forma­tion of needle shaped seed crys­tals, which attract further precip­i­ta­tion to them­selves rather than the metal surfaces around them. The resulting crys­tals are washed away in the water flow.
  • Elec­trolytic devices
    These add minute quan­ti­ties of metal – usually zinc or iron – to suppress the forma­tion of scale by altering the chem­ical equi­lib­rium of the water. They also act as sites for the scale to precip­i­tate on to, conse­quently protecting metal surfaces.

Note: Phys­ical water condi­tioning devices, unlike water soft­eners, do not soften the water by lowering the calcium and magne­sium content.

The perfor­mance of all water treat­ment devices is depen­dent on a number of factors, including the quality of the water locally, and the nature of the specific heating system involved. The condi­tioning effect is only tempo­rary and is unsuit­able for water that is to be stored for any length of time.

Limebeater

The Liff Lime­beater from BWT is a profes­sional quality elec­trolytic inline scale inhibitor and scale reducer. With a condi­tioning effect that lasts longer than a magnetic condi­tioner Lime­beaters are ideal for protecting single appli­ances and whole house instal­la­tions. Designed for easy instal­la­tion, their compact size and high quality finish makes them ideal for where space is limited or the instal­la­tion is visible. Requiring no power supply the compact range is without main­te­nance and zero chem­i­cals.

Wrappa

BWT’s Wrappa is an elec­tronic scale inhibitor that uses radio frequen­cies to alter the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the hard­ness minerals in the water, preventing them from forming hard to remove scale deposits. The Wrappa requires connec­tion to an ordi­nary elec­tical house­hold socket but has no need for ongoing main­te­nance or chem­i­cals
